Hugh shot the cover and recipes for Ray Mears new book the Wilderness Chef, his second to focus on food rather than his skills as a bush craft and survival expert. Ray has presented various tv series and regularly exercises his skills to the SAS.

Ray is a black belt judo 7 dan and used to train with fashion photographer Terence Donovan, Hugh’s old boss.
You can never better the flavour of fresh wild salmon cooked over birch wood.
